and further away made their living standards are slashed and force us to repeat or taxes used to build governments on the other side of the continent. we're for starting duties at some demonstrations of athens, madrid and rome. restarting casein in berlin, helsinki and the hague and of course were saying this frustration with the e.u. vary dramatically here in the united kingdom. europe's leaders have a duty to hear these concerns. indeed we have a duty to act on them and not just to fix the problems in the euro zone, but if in any emergency should plan for the amount as well as dealing with the present crisis center in the midst of present challenges we should plan for the future and what the world will look like when difficulties in the euro zone have been overcome. the biggest danger to the european union comes not from those who advocate change, but those who denounce new thinking is heresy. in its long history, europe has experienced heretics that turned out to have point. my point is this. for the same will not secure long-term future for the euro zone. more of the sample not fit

an outdated and anticompetitive tax code, and to streamline government bureaucracies that are literally suffering job creation. they have done their jobs while senate democrats have tried to keep their priorities secret. now, we know senate democrats don't like the house budgets, and we know they don't even support the president's budgets, at least not with their votes. what we haven't known for nearly four years is what they're for, because they have refused to put their plans for the country down on paper and actually vote for them. now it's my hope that the democratic sudden interest in passing a budget isn't just another attempt to actually raise taxes. as i've said repeatedly, we're done with the revenue issue. the president has already said that the so-called rich are now paying their -- quote -- "fair share" -- end quote, and of course middle-class families are already on the hook for new taxes as a result of obamacare. so the question is who would be in the firing line this time? and at what cost? look, struggling families shouldn't have to pick up the tab again for washington'

austerity or the taxes are used to bail out governments on the other side of the continent. we are starting to see this in the demonstrations on the streets of athens, magid and world. we're starting to see it in the parliaments of berlin, helsinki and the hague. and yes, of course, we are seeing this frustration with the eu very dramatically here in the united kingdom. europe's leaders have a duty to hear these concerns. indeed, we have a duty to act on them. and not just to fix the problems in the eurozone. for just as in any emergency you should plan for the aftermath as well as dealing with the present crisis, so, too, in the midst of the present challenges we should plan for the future, and what the world will look like when the difficulties and the eurozone have been overcome. now, the biggest danger to the european union comes not from those who advocate change, but from those who denounce new thinking as heresy. in its long history europe has experience of heretics who turned out to have a point. and my point is this. more the same on the secure a long-term future for the eurozone.

. they need a breather now. they've been on the defense for a year on tax cuts for millionaires, on toughness, shutting down the government, they're not going to compromise. they need to recalbright here, a reset button needs to be pushed and it seems like in every aspect of government. and fight on future spending, noton obligations already incur. >> ifill: in the inaugural address this week, we saw the president lay out his gold for what he wants the next four years-- or the next year at least to be. what is the republican counter to that? >> i think the republicans have recalbrighted their tactics but not their end goals. they're in favor of cutting spending without new revenues. paul ryan this morning said no new revenues. the president has gotten all the revenues he will get. they have doubled down on spending cuts. they say they have a plan that will balance the federal budget in 10 years. you can only do that without revenues if you have really devastating cuts on all kinds of domestic programs and we'll see if they're willing to deliver on that. >> ifill: one democrat today and republ

to take a profit before the higher capital gains taxes can kicked in at the beginning of the year. what's happening today is investors choosing to get out of the stock because competition is becoming more of a factor. there are these quality alternatives going strong these days. i'm talking about the tablet and the smartphone arena. it's getting crowded. what you're seeing is the average price is still around $700. a lot of people are still sweet on apple shares even though it plunged today, wolf. >> steve jobs died about a year and a half ago. what does all of this say about tim cook's tenure as the apple's ceo? >> it says you know what, you're going to get the blame, tim cook. you're the ceo so the buck stops with you. he saw the blowout of the iphone 4s and took the stocks to greater heights. it was around $375 when he took over. the price almost doubled in tim cook's first year in charge. it peaked in september when iphone 5 came out. since then, the shares have been tumbling. for one, wall street and analysts don't have much confidence that he can deliver like steve jobs did, that

't think we can continue to tax the american economy when we need economic growth but it's about prioritizing spending. i'm a fiscal conservative who believes foreign aid can be useful but we have to get spending under control. will you use your position to encourage the president to work with us in good faith to solve the debt -- the debt and deficit issue? >> i spent six months, i guess, or five month, as a member of the super committee and i put enormous amount of energy and hope that we would be able to get the big bargain, the grand deal. i'm not here to go through all the the tails why we didn't. but there was a very hard line, nonnegotiating position that prevented us from being able to come to an agroment which incidentally we just came to. but we came to it with far less on the table and far less accomplished than we would have had if we'd come to that agreement six months ago or a year ago. so my hope is, yes, i certainly will weigh in on that to the degree that it has an impact on my ability to do my job and the ability of the state department to do its job. we cannot
